    Aggadic Moses: Spinoza and Freud on the Traumatic Legacy of Theological-Political Identity.Jeffrey A. Bernstein - 2008 - Idealistic Studies 38 (1-2):3-21.
    This paper attempts to explore the problem of collective identity and its subsequent historical legacies through a reading of Spinoza’s and Freud’s respective accounts of Moses. In working their way through the aggadah of Moses, both Spinoza and Freud find the halakhic core of collectivity to be expressed in and as social mediation. Moreover, both thinkers discover that the occlusion of this core leads to a collective trauma, the symptom of which is the formation of the ‘theological-political’.

    Aggadic Moses.Jeffrey A. Bernstein - 2008 - Idealistic Studies 38 (1-2):3-21.
    This paper attempts to explore the problem of collective identity and its subsequent historical legacies through a reading of Spinoza’s and Freud’s respective accounts of Moses. In working their way through the aggadah (i.e., legend) of Moses, both Spinoza and Freud find the halakhic (i.e., legal) core of collectivity to be expressed in and as social mediation. Moreover, both thinkers discover that the occlusion of this core leads to a collective trauma (in Freud’s sense), the symptom of which is the (...)

    How Leo Strauss Approached Hegel on Faith and God.Jeffrey A. Bernstein - 2018 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 45 (1-2):72-90.
    Despite the relative scarcity of references to Hegel in Strauss’s published work, one can begin to get a sense of how Strauss regarded Hegel. This paper deals with Strauss’s views concerning the Hegelian construal of faith and God. For Strauss, Hegel’s construal of divine personality as subject rather than substance amounts to something like a rejection of the divine personality.

    Is History New? Recent Modernist Interpretations of Hegel.Jeffrey A. Bernstein - 2012 - Journal of the Philosophy of History 6 (2):283-298.
    This review explores a recent trend in commentary on Hegel’s philosophy of history which owes much of its interpretive substance to the aesthetic modernism of the Frankfurt School. This modernist trend emphasizes the interplay of form and content, material conditions of rationality, and the temporal disjunction between experiencing and cognizing history. In so doing, it produces a deeply political, psychoanalytic, and musical reading of Hegel.

    New Directions in the Thought of Leo Strauss.Jeffrey A. Bernstein - 2014 - Idealistic Studies 44 (2-3):139-147.
    The figure and thought of Leo Strauss continues to provoke impassioned reactions from advocates and critics. The majority of these reactions are less engaged with Strauss’s thought than with his person and school. This volume seeks to contribute to the increase in philosophical attention paid to Strauss’s thought. The contributions collected herein exemplify both a deep and abiding familiarity with Strauss’s thought as well as a need to find new directions to explore within that thought.

    Nietzsche, Psychology, and First Philosophy (Review).Jeffrey A. Bernstein - 2011 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 49 (1):127-128.
    The first four chapters of Pippin's elegant volume on Nietzsche were originally delivered as a series of lectures at the Collège de France in 2004. In a certain respect, the context of these lectures defines the parameters of Pippin's reading of Nietzsche: he advocates an interpretation very close to Bernard Williams in emphasizing the psychological aspects and motifs of Nietzsche's thought over and against certain contemporary French appropriations . In over-emphasizing the deconstructive capacity of Nietzsche's text, Pippin holds, these interpretations (...)

    Spinoza and Politics. [REVIEW]Jeffrey A. Bernstein - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 53 (2):426-427.
    Balibar’s text gives an interpretation of Spinoza’s philosophy which has received relatively scarce attention in the English speaking world. This interpretation can be termed “dialectical” insofar as it views Spinoza’s texts in a dynamic relationship with one another, and with the historical and theologicopolitical environment of seventeenth century Holland. Thus, when he states that “I propose to initiate the reader into Spinoza’s thinking through his politics,” Balibar means for the political context to be understood not as a static ground for (...)

    Thoughts on the Two Translations of Heidegger’s Beiträge.Jeffrey A. Bernstein - 2012 - Comparative and Continental Philosophy 4 (2):295 - 306.
    The following reflections examine the new translation of Heidegger’s Beiträge zur Philosophie in relation to the former one. These reflections assess the relative merits of both translations and attempt to show how this relation illustrates specific issues in Heidegger’s text concerning the first and other beginnings of Western thought.

    The Relevance of Philosophy to Life.Jeffrey A. Bernstein - 1996 - Review of Metaphysics 50 (1):167-168.
    The notion of "relevance" in philosophy is ultimately determined by a notion of "utility" that has been present in American culture from very early on. In Democracy in America, Tocqueville stated that "Democratic nations... prefer the useful to the beautiful, and... require that the beautiful should be useful". Today, the issues of utility and relevance are motivations for a congress which threatens to drastically cut funding for humanities programs around the country. At a time when employment in the academy is (...)

    Viewing the Premises, Review Of: Richard L. Velkley. Heidegger, Strauss, and the Premises of Philosophy: On Original Forgetting.Jeffrey A. Bernstein - 2012 - Research in Phenomenology 42 (3):467-477.
    A principle aim of this paper is to convince friends and critics of deconstruction that they have overlooked two crucial aspects of Derrida's work, namely, his rearticulation of the concept of experience and his account of the experience of undecidability as an ordeal. This is important because sensitivity to Derrida's emphasis on the ordeal of undecidability and his rearticulation of the concept of experience-a rearticulation that is already under way in his early engagement with Husserl and continued in later work-necessitates (...)
